The attention of farmers hast nlrondj
boon directed to the largely incranioi
( iriimml for cereal products that Is llkol.i
to arlwo from the apprehended failure
of the wheat crop in Ktiropoan countries
Any material decrease In the forolgt
grain supply must necessarily Increasi
requisition upon the American marke
with consequent bettor prices. The
latest advices Indicate the gravity of tlu
apprehensions that exist abroad respect
Ing the outlook for the wheat yield li
western Kuropo. This Is Increased by
the certainty of a dollclcncy In the sup
ply from India. An Kngllsh estimate
places the probable deilc.it that may b <
expected from this source at not Io3
than : i5,000,000 bushels below the anpplj
of last year. In Franco the phenomena'
bad weather has ruined the possibility
of redeeming the next wheat harves
from an extensive failure. In l-'nglaml
similar weather conditions have dls
couraged a hopeful outlook for pas
turage and the root crop as wel
as for grain. In Germany the sltualloi
is as bad and in other countries of western
orn Europe equally unfavorable condi
tlons prevail. Though the promise Ir
Russia Is more encouraging than jus
preceding the famine season a couple o
years ago , it is not expected the harvos
in that country will como up to Its for
mer average. Moreover , the grea
local demand will prevent the hlthct'ti
large exports from the ports of the o/.ar
With a knowledge of the prccudini
facts every intcslltgent farmer can readily
ily nndeotniid the character of the do
mund that is likely to como from abrnut
for the food products of this country
The failure of their homo harvests , th <
decrease in the wheat supply in tin
east on which they have hitherto beei
largely dependent will compel foreigi
countries to look about for other source !
of food. And to no country can the ;
turn with greater expectation than to tin
United States. Nor does it follow tha
deprived of their customary fooi
supply they will seek to re
plenish the deficit with whoa
alone. The greater probability i
that the demand will bo general for ul
the fooij products , animal and vcgotabl
as well as cereal. Doubtless a botte
opportunity will thus bo afforded th
populations of European countries to become
como familiar with the value of Indiai
maize as an article of diet than all tli
cITorts of Messrs. Murphy and Matte
could have secured under ordinary con
ditions , however vigorous.
It is the bounteous varied agrlcultura
resources of this country that encoui1
ages the belief that the farmers ar
about to receive a reward more com
mensurnto with their labors than as
general rule heretofore. It is not un
likely that our own wheat yield will b
considerably below the average of recoil
years. Certainly it is not expected t
approximate the majestic crop of 18U1
The drouth in the southern par
of the western wheat belt , th
continuous rains in the northori :
especially in Minnesota and th
upper Dakota , render it not impossible
in the opinion of crop exports , that ou
total wheat crop this year may bo as lo1
-100,000,000 bushels , or not more tha
50,000,000 in excess of the probab'l
quantity needed for home c msiunptioi
The most liberal estimate does nut plac
thn quantity of old wheat that will bo o
hand at the beginning of the next cro
year at more than 100,000,000 bushel :
Thus it is seen that if the foreign di
maud for food approximates the uropoi
tions now logically expected it must I
.supplied by aoino other product tha
Heroin lies the promised advantage t
the extensive farmers of the rich cor
bolts of the central and western state :
There Is ample time for thorn yet to aj
predate the situation and increase tliei
intentional acreage of planting. Tim
corn can bo made to supply the delic
in the wheat crop seams too probable t
bo regarded as problematical. Tl ;
smaller farmers will reap comparath
benefit. The greater demand for whe :
and corn will increase that for vegcti
bio and other farm products to suppl
the gap thus cro'itod at home as well i
the requirements abroad.
It is ollicially announced that M
Blount has boon aiLintod | ) minister res
dent to the Hawaiian islands , and ho
probably now acting in that capndlt ;
It had boon understood that Mr. Stoi
ens , whom Blount succeeded , was to r
main as minister until May Ul , but a di
patch from Washington of two days tif
stated that owing to his activity in hi
half of annexation there was roa-ian 1
believe ho would bo superseded at a
earlier date. The onielalannouncomoi
of the appointment of Ulount was pro'
ably intended to bo coincident with tl :
appointment reaching him. Practical
Mr. Blount has boon performing mil
isterlal functions over since his arriva
in the character of a special ennui !
sionor , in the Hawaiian islands , but
was obviously necessary to clothe hli
with the full powers of a minister if
was intended to continue him then
which Is now soon to bo the case.
There dnos not appaar to ba any spt
clal significance in this appointment , <
far as its bsaring upjn the question r
annexation is onoarnod. The pul
lie 1ms no pjsltlvo knowlodf
of the position of the pre.sldoi
or of the now minister on this quostic
and nothing can 1)3 safely Inferred froi
the fact that the administration scon
to have hastened the removal of Stovoi
because of his t jo active sympathy wit
the annoxattonists , oxcupt that the pros
dent djjlrea that the attitude of th
government toward the partloj in tli
islands shall bo that of abioluto impa
tlallty. Obviously the admlnUtratlo
cjuld In Bueh circumstances hold r
u Jiuiminicatl.m with a minister who w ;
known to bo strongly partial la oa
of the parties and presumably p.- ,
pared to do all in his pawor to pr
mote its purposed. The appointment (
Blount does not , therefore , throw an
now light upon the ultimate Intentb :
of the administration. It simply gin
assurance that there will ba no Intorfa
once by the government of the Unitt
States In the political affairs of tl
Hawaiian Islands beyond what may I
necojsary to safeguard American rlgli
and Interests there , while at the sun
time no other foreign government wl
bo permitted to interfere. Of
Minister Blount will present his creden
tials to the provisional government ,
which has already been recognized
to the extent of negotiating r
treaty of annexation with Its ropro
sontattvcs , for , although the treaty wni
withdrawn , It Is not necessarily aban
doned , but Bitch recognition docs no !
Involve the necessity of this govornmen
taking sides in the political conflict
between the revolutionists and the
Some of the advocates of annexation
profess to bolleve that the administra
tion intends to ultimately urge upon
congress the expediency of incorporating
the Hawaiian Islands with tills country.
The Now York Him a few days ago
had a double-leaded editorial tc
this effect , the character of itf
article implying that it was in
possession of inside information. There
has been nothing , however , in the course
of the administration thus far is indl
cato that It has any sympathy with the
annexation project. Now that Mr
Bluunt lias bean clothed with the func
tions of a minister thuro may bo some
thing developed which will give the
public some positive knowledge of the
Intentions of the administration regardIng -

The only people of the state who cai
view with complacency the prospect n
another long delay in the trial of C. W
Moshor , the Lincoln financier who b ;
his defalcations wrecked the Capita
National bunk , are the depositors win
wore ruined when' : , that itistitiitloi
closed its doors last January , . Thosi
depositors have been deluded with tin
idea that if Moshor can bo ullowei
to escape the punishment ho so richl ,
deserves ho will reimburse them fo
their losses by inducing his relatives t
contribute something like 8100,000 t
make up the bank's deficiency. Aotin ,
upon this assumption , they have formei
an n-i.sociution , employed attorneys
circulated petitions and taken over
piuslble step to inlluoiico the fedoni
authorities to "compromise" wit
Moshor by permitting him to go fro
upm : the payment of a nominal lino.
Under the circumstances thodopos
tors can hardly bo criticised for thoi
peculiar view of the cuso. A larg
majority of them are working men an
women , clerks and small business moi
Any personal satisfaction they migli
fool in knowing that Moshor had bee
punished to the fullest extent of th
law would bo overbalanced by the sulToi
ing and inconvenience caused by thoi
pecuniary lo.-ssos. Utilizing that the
are in no financial condition la insu
upon the inlliction of a heavy puntsli
mont at the oxp''ino of their pockets
they are willing to cjinpromLio wit
crime to the extent of nesting the di
faultor to cheapo doiorve.l punishiiunl
There is , however , nnMhor and
broader view of Mother's case. Ilo i
one of the heaviest defaulters in the re
e.-iit financial history of the ojuntrj
Ills peculations excaotl tha ha
million mark. Ho cJinmltte-J h
crimes with a ciolnoj ? , a cunning an
an adroitness which biitlbd detectioi
and would have continued his infatnot ;
career in.lullnltely if ho had not grasj
ingly overreached himself. When the it
ovitabloonnh came ho was , through th
carelessness or indifference of this enl
olllcial who hud the knowledge or th
power to stand between him and th
helpless depositors , enabled to tranjfe
largo blocks of property to his assnciati
and thus place It bayond the reach of h
creditors. The real estate and porsuiii
property placed In the hands of h
friends would m > ro than in vko up th
deficiency of 8100,000 , if proper stoj
wore taken by the depositors to seem
it. The immense property belonging 1
the prison contract which was -turn * :
over to William Djrgan would nlono a
most sutlleo to wipe out the deficiency.
The association of depositors , who ai
now apparently so anxious to ofl'ect
compromise , should exhaust every r
source before carrying out tholrprogra
to secure M'whor's release. They me
properly employ able counsel , go In
the courts and make an honorable logs
effort , first establish what evorybad
tacitly believes , that Mother's transfoi
of real property to his friends wore mat
with a dollbarate Intent to defraud h
creditors ; and second , to secure an ordi
from the courts requiring the procout
of all property recovered by the recolvi
to bo so divided that the depositors wi
share on a pro rata basis with the oth <
creditors of the bank.
If this can bo accomplished , and the :
should bo no reason why it could nc
there would bo no necessity for a e ) i
promise wl'-h justico. Then Mr. Mosln
could bo punished by the heaviest none
ties the law can lay upon him , and li
case bo made a warning to all similar
disposed financiers , who in the futu
will only too gladly avail thomsclvoa i

Govr.UNOU SliKi.uoK of South Dakota
: ins excited -condemnation of the
minors of the Hlls by his appointment
of W. S. O'JJrlonM state mine Inspector.
If the complaint' the miners Is just It
would scorn that Km governor had made
a grave mistake In his selection of the
man for this Important position. Not
only the tomporaUntoro.sts , but the very
safety of the llrosj-'of the minors Is , to a
argo extent , dependent on the compe-
, ence and fidelity of the min
ing Inspector. The minors oh-
iect to Mr. O'Hrlon on the ground
: hat ho has for a number of
years been in the employ of the Home-
stake company , and they express their
apprehensions le st ho may prove amen-
tblc to the inllucnces of this company to
the detriment of their own Interests. A
vigorous demand is made for his prompt
removal , ami the minors threaten to
: > oycott the governor's further political
aspirations unless their prayer Is favor
AND now nil effort is being made be
fore the North Dakota supreme court to
knock out the prohibition law on the
ground of uncon.stitutionality. The con
tention is that the prohibition article is
void because it did not receive a major
ity of all the votes cast at the election
on the adoption of the constitution. The
article was voted on separately at the
same election , but the vote polled on it
was not as great as the vote cast for the
constitution itself. It is also hold that
Lhe law to enforce the article is void
because its title is defective , in that it
embraces two separate acts under one
title. It has been hold in South Dakota
that the name detect invalidated its pro
hibition law , but the question lias never
been tested before its supreme court.
Therefore the case in North Dakota will
bo watched with equal interest by the
people of bath states.
